@ Beam, I was going to post the same.

As for Battleborn, I am withholding judgement until I see actual gameplay.

I played PAYDAY 2 once, by myself, on a free via Steam weekend. It was some mission where I had to go in to a mall and smash stuff. Then cops started showing up in endless waves, leading to a ridiculous, never-ending firefight. I think the problem was I just didn’t really know how to accomplish my goal, and also the AI team mates weren’t overly competent. So it was a mediocre play session, and I gave up on it.

That's the problem I have with this game. The endless spawning on Police. After you have completed a mission, you feel like you just wiped out the full police force for the city.


Would you prefer the police to be fewer but more lethal? Also, when there's a major bank robbery in real life, you actually do get the whole city police force responding.

...why are they so surprised?

Recently, Quentin Tarantino shared a new script with six (6) actors he knows. It got leaked to the internet. He was so mad, he decided not to make the movie.

Yep...
Subscriptions & Early Access.

Software is turning into highway robbery - but worse many of us are willing to get robbed by choice...

The high price keeps the number of early adopters, and thus the amount of feedback down, while still providing feedback. What you're paying for is not only the chance to play before everyone else, but also the chance to have some influence on the design of the game. Like Beam said, no one is holding a gun to your head. If I were young and single, I'd do this, as I often registered for game betas back in the days before early access. These days, time is limited though, so I only buy finished games, and usually months after release so that I play the most stable, up to date version.

What a douchenozzle.

What the hell am I looking at? A fake profile created by the devs to try to call out complainers in the least legible way?

That's precisely it. He (I assume) kept spamming the comments section with that wall-o-text so no one could have a legit conversation.

I'm not too worried about Star Citizen (at least at this phase) they have had some communication problems but the technology behind the game so far is solid enough for an Alpha.

Where have you been? They overdid it on the physics and it lags everyone in multiplayer. They've been trying to fix it for weeks and still haven't been able to.
The technology behind the game can't carry it where they want them to go. Just wait and see at the other countless problems they're going to have with CryEngine.

So it gets delayed? So what? I don't really see what the problem here is.

What I really don't understand is why they don't claim success, and keep going. PC gaming has had steady growth since the PCGA started in 2008. Yes much of that has come from free to play, but other sectors of PC gaming have grown as well.

It's not a problem. The PC platform is anti central-planning and for good reason: central planning too often doesn't work. The very continued existence of the ~32 year old platform is testament to more or less free market forces.

The PC gaming market is a shining example of market capitalism at work and producing a wide variety of superior products. We've never had it so good.

Really? You remember my posts about how derivative it seemed and how boring the combat looked (I did admire the envs tho). What did you find so compelling?

Get ready to wait a long time Chattanooga, or better yet go after your state government that's decided its unfair to make Comcast and AT&T compete...ever...against anyone.

Yes. When corporations partner with government is called corporatism or cronyism. It's a flavor of socialism. It's not capitalism!

Capitalism:
an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.
Corporatism:
the control of a state or organization by large interest groups.

In the case of Chattanooga, what we have is both capitalism (since Comcast is controlling the internet industry for profit) and corporatism (since Comcast is controlling the government to maintain their monopoly). Unregulated monopolies are still capitalism, just not the kind that brings benefits to anyone other than the monopoly. May as well have the state running things at that point.
